Day 1

Was there ever a place

that filled you with such dread

as the place inside your head?

You don’t like to revisit

where you used to sit

or where they bury the dead.

The cold burns fire

truth is a liar

and the silence is deafening.

 

Day 1 for NaPoWriMo where the prompt was to write a “Kay-Ryan-esque” poem.  And for the Poetic Asides Poem-A-Day challenge where poetry editor, Robert Lee Brewer, asks for a little reminiscing.
